“Never Wanted Your Love” is one of many incredible tunes on Volume 3, which will be released on May 7, 2013 on Merge Records. Indeed, Volume 3 is another exciting chapter in singer-songwriter Zooey Deschanel and guitarist/producer M. Ward’s unique collaboration. Deschanel and Ward are like 21st century pen pals, emailing music files back and forth from whatever recording studio, sound stage or dressing room they happen to be in. We get to periodically share in this exuberant exchange as they display their passion for, and knowledge of, a wide range of music – from classic country to vintage pop, no frills rock and roll to grandly overdubbed Wall Of Sound drama.
In Volume 3, they’ve created an effortlessly effervescent, bleached-out-in-the-sun pop record, featuring some of the most dynamic, complex songs Deschanel has ever written. The album allows for tempo shifts, disco grooves, string arrangements on multiple tracks, and horn flourishes that perfectly suit the She & Him sound.
Pre-order She & Him's Volume 3 now on CD or LP in the Merge store. The first 500 LP preorders will receive Volume 3 on limited edition robin's egg blue colored vinyl! Preorders will include a poster and will ship to arrive on our around the release date of May 7.
